A nice forested walk along Pyramid Creek leads up to a granite expanse that takes you -- somewhat confusingly -- to Horsetail Falls. Just try to stay near the creek to avoid losing the trail on the bare granite. Some people continue upward to the top of the falls, but that can be quite dangerous (some have died).

No shade after the initial section. Like anything at this elevation, not accessible in snowy season.

Parking lot is $5 but the highway has wide spots that are probably legally free.
